Dying Matters Week 2024
May 9th, 2024

This week is Dying Matters Week, a week focused on increasing awareness about end-of-life care and planning and to encourage people to feel comfortable talking about dying, death and bereavement.

Honest, timely conversations about death and dying are essential to good end of life care. Yet all too often barriers, including lack of confidence, taboos around discussing death, and confusion about who should be having these conversations mean patients, carers and families may not understand what is happening, or get all the information and support they need.

Feeling listened to when talking about grief, death and dying is so important. Being there for someone makes all the difference when you just need a bit of validation, understanding and support. We understand how hard it is to start that conversation but we are here for you and the kettle is always on.
